St Nicholas Hospice Care are delighted to receive their ‘Good Deed’ from arc shopping centre.
St Nicholas Hospice Care have been needing a lifting device for the hospice to enable them to lift people up from the floor in a safe and dignified manner. arc shopping centre are very happy to have purchased this essential equipment for use both at the hospice and in the community.
This is the first of the 10 good deeds that the shopping centre are carrying out over the next 10 months. As arc is celebrating 10 years of being open in the heart of Bury St Edmunds, they thought carrying out 10 good deeds that give back to the local community would be a great way of thanking everyone for their valued support. After all the centre wouldn’t be the same without the support of the community.
Abbie Panks, arc centre manager said "The hospice team work so hard in our community and I am thrilled that we have been able to support them with the first of our '10 Good Deeds'. The equipment we have provided will be used for years to come and help many people"
Angela Jiggins, Hospice Physiotherapist, said “We are so grateful for the very kind donation of the Mangar ELK. Having valuable equipment like this enables us to support and help our patients in a dignified and professional manner. The Mangar ELK is an emergency lifting cushion and it is designed to lift a person from the floor. It can be a huge challenge when someone has a fall, not only for the person but for staff also. With this donation it will make it safer and more efficient for all involved. So a huge thank you from us all at St Nicholas Hospice Care."
arc shopping centre will be carrying out nine more good deeds throughout 2019. Members of the public wishing to make a nomination should head to the arc shopping centre website and complete the short nomination form here .
